Buttered Toads

Here is Jordan Schwarz’s latest creation. A yellow frog?! Got to get me one of those. Here’s what Jordan had to say about this MOC:

I fell in love with the little yellow froggy from the new Harry Potter game Hogwarts and thought I’d build something featuring it. And light yellow is by far my favorite LEGO color, so I made this. Meet Buttered Toads. I don’t know who, what or why Buttered is, but here he is. Yup.

Yellow LEGO Frog

Need I say more? Okay, maybe a little, for those of you who don’t quite  recognize the ramifications of this. Well, for one, the LEGO Frog is already my absolutely favorite piece. They usually come in green, and sometimes in Dark-Bluish Grey or even Trans-Green. But this new yellow frog was just released in the new LEGO Harry Potter Board Game.


Due to the Frog’s small size, it’s relatively easy to find helmets he’ll fit in for mechs. Frog mechs are not completely uncommon, though not exactly a “mainstream subtheme” … yet. 😉


Jordan’s done some pretty cool stuff here to give  the idea of the long “fingers” a frog would have (though admittedly the webbing is a little hard to accomplish in LEGO brick) — and also making them functionable and having “opposable thumbs.” Gorillas will be jealous.
(Notice that the thumb is actually a minifig hand.)


Looks like Jordan is combining some clip tiles with some hoze nozzles. He’s also got some nicely placed yellow droid torsos on the legs.
